HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR STAY
Day 1 – Following this morning’s door-to-door pick-ups we travel to Worcester. The city is best known for its magnificent Cathedral, which rises majestically above the sparkling river Severn. Attracting visitors from all over the world, since the 18th Century the Cathedral has been famous for its part in the annual Three Choirs Festival, the oldest choral festival in existence. After a little free time here, this afternoon we continue to our hotel.
Day 2 – After breakfast we take you to Painswick Rococo Garden to see the delightful Snowdrops. As the country’s sole surviving complete Rococo Garden, it oozes the elegant and sophistication of the early 1700s, a time when gardens were fashionable theatrical sets, providing stunning backdrops to decadent garden parties. Today it has one of the largest naturalistic planting of Snowdrops in England. After you have explored why not enjoy a slice of a delicious homemade cake in the cosy café? This afternoon will be spent at leisure.
Day 3 – After a relaxing morning, this afternoon we visit the Gloucester – the Cathedral city of the Cotswolds – where we will have free time to enjoy the remainder of the day. A trip here wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the 11th Century Gloucester Cathedral, resting place of King Edward II and a hugely popular film and television location.
Day 4 – Today our experienced driver will take us on a scenic drive around the Cotswolds, during the tour we will enjoy leisurely stops in: Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh stopping the delightful snowdrops!
Day 5 – After an enjoyable stay (and another hearty breakfast) we return home.
